Summary: So far it is working well. I had a little trouble with the paper feed. The paper would go through fine but then the paper jam error would flash and I would have to restart it. I got on line and found that all I needed to do was remove and reinsert the paper feed and it works without a hitch now. Easy solution! Good product.
Summary: I bought it for use in our temple. We scan a lot of documents occasionally - as many as 100 in a couple of hours. I rarely have paper jams and that's also because of thin or folded papers - not scanner's fault in my opinion. I love this scanner so far.
Summary: For the price, I think this has been worth it. I've scanned thousands of documents (black and white docs., color magazine articles) , but as other reviewers have pointed out, loading fifty pages at a time isn't possible. Also, while it does work now, it loads fewer pages at a time than when I first got it (and I don't see any paper fiber build-up). After extended use, it just doen't work as well, but I have gotten so much quality use out of it... and for the price...
Pros: Here's how to get it to work with XP64. Break open the .msi files found at the manufacturer's website. Use the drivers from XP32, and the software from Vista64. This combo works just fine on my XP64 SP2 system.
Cons: Very small footprint is nice, but it means the feeder tray sits nearly vertical, meaning creased bills and other folded items to not sit flat. Will probably have to build a better tray for it.
Summary: Awhile back, I had a chance to use a DocuMate 162 that someone else had purchased. I was blown away by its speed, quality and small footprint. I could not get over how something that compact could plow through so much paper so fast. On top of that, it handled duplexing very well. The software seemed Ok, and I was familiar with Nuance products. That was the 162. I bought the 152 because I really could not justify the additional $.
